Pathe comedy with Max Linder. Released in the U.S. on June 4, 1912.
"Max, awakening on his wedding morning, discovers that it is close on the hour when he should be at the church. He dresses hastily, and in struggling with a refractory collar, allows his boots to be burnt by the fire. There is no time to change them, and he hastens off to the bride's house. On the way his soles part company with their uppers, and poor Max enters into negotiations with a passing labourer for the purchase of his footgear. The wretched bridegroom draws the boots on his cold feet, and stamps up the stairs to greet his waiting bride. She catches sight of his footwear, and in a flood of tears points them out to her father. This gentleman, furiously angry, stops the proceedings and orders Max off the premises, in spite of the latter's protestation that his boots are the latest fashion. Finding that his protestation are pooh-poohed, Max treacherously makes an ally of one of the lady guests, renowned for setting fashions, by poking his boots underneath her skirt. His father-in-law, unable to doubt any longer, recalls him, and the wedding duly takes place." (The Bioscope, Jan. 11, 1912)
